Roche Abbey

Roche AbbeyLike the mono approach and the general composition.

I may have tried to get a higher angle though if possible in order to place some space between the stones and break up the composition a little. A good idea there is to try and get the straight lines of the foundations to act as lead in lines which aim towards the larger ruins at the back. The mowed rectangular lawned area there (just see to the left) is good for this too especially using a low angle and the bridge over the stream that also runs through the grounds can be worked in to other angles to add some variety to the composition. I might run the dodge tool over the top of the large ruins too as they look a bit dark and go for a slightly tighter crop...?

Just suggestions Smile

Pinknicely done...

Only thing with these flowers is that they have a dark center, perhaps some directed illumination there from a torch or snoot would reveal more detail with the shot...? I'd be tempted to add a radial blurring of the outer area of the petalls too to add some individualism as there are bunches and bunches of flower shots on here that look quite similar Smile

Having said all that I'll finish the sandwhich off by saying that it's still attractive viewing and I really like the colour of it and the angle was well chosen.

Ferns Waterfall.

Ferns Waterfall.I like the general composition here and softness of the water.

I may have been tempted to do a tighter crop from the sides (in the area of the short dark brown leaf line towards the bottom left corner) so that the stream dominates the image a little more. Also I would have used the sponge tool set to desaturate to try and get rid of the blue colour in the water, if you do this on a duplicate layer then you can always adjust the opacity after to bring some back if you like...?

Nice strong colours in the foliage too Smile

FlowerYou got the point of focus and angle right.

Might have done a slight curves adjustment to bleach out the background as the green colour cast stands out a lot especially when compared to the ePz white border...? I may also have added a boost of colour to the petals with the sponge tool. The background looks better in version 2 and the shadow looks ok, but I still prefer the angle and impact of version 1...

Eyeing Up

Eyeing UpGreat colour tones here Steve, like how he's stood looking down the track. Good how he's framed by the surrounding structure of the cab too...

Minor niggles are the bit of white line to the bottom left and the white dot to the top right that I would have either cropped or cloned out...? I might also have darkened the white line running round the cab and also the light on the paintwork to the left hand side, doing this might place a bit more emphasis upon the driver...?

The high vis vest is mucky'd to perfection Smile

My Lens is dirty............

My Lens is dirty............Nice one - amusing with the cautious expression and description...

I think you could do with adding a bit of contrast to the image though, possibly by adjusting the curves to a slight S shape on an adjustment layer. I might be tempted to boost the colour too and try a little sharpening around the facial features.

I think the crop on the hare works well here and adds impact to it's expression. The soft background is pleasing whilst the sharper green grasses at the front suggest a feeding place like you noted whilst also providing a bit of cover to illustrate the hare's natural environment Smile
